    1. I have stayed in this hotel and had a very very strong emotional ghostly experience. The female ghost of the hotel attached herself to me and gave me an overwhelming emotional experience. When she realized that she was overwhelming me she backed off a little bit but never very far from me when I stay there. I never saw her apparition but I could describe to you exactly what she looks like and approximate age of when she died. The two children that are also there would look at me from around corners. They never approached me nor did I see their ghostly bodies but I knew when they was watching me.
